Bloodlineby Ernest J. Gaines
With "A Long Day in November," "The Sky is Gray,"
In this collection of five short stories, the author of THE AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF MISS JANE PITTMAN deals with the culture and tradition of the Southern African-American. His narratives give the reader a glimpse into the forces most affecting the experience of these Americans both in the home and on decaying plantations.
With "A Long Day in November," "The Sky is Gray," "Three Men," "Bloodline," and "Just Like a Tree," the author creates characters straight from life. He uses his knowledge of the times to render compassionate and accurate stories of a commonly unapprehended slice of America.
